Marc David Switzer went to be with his loving savior on April 29th, 2017. Marc was born December 1st, 1966 in Kennewick, WA to Gary and Gloria Switzer. Growing up in Kennewick, Marc enjoyed spending endless hours skiing, and playing sports. Marc was adventurous, and always mischievous, as his mother can attest to. He lived life fully from the very beginning. Marc graduated from Kennewick High School in 1985. During high school Marc participated and excelled in football as a middle linebacker and baseball as a pitcher and first basemen for the mighty Lions. After high school, Marc dedicated over 20 years of his career to Watts Construction. In 2014, Marc formed Legacy Excavation LLC. During the first year, Legacy partnered with Brad Conner, as they knew that together they could really build on one another's strengths. Marc's great desire and prayer was that Legacy would allow him to leave a legacy for his family and for his community; eventually allowing him to retire from active employment and work in the mission field. He worked tirelessly toward that goal. In 2001, Marc was blessed with his adorable daughter, Bailey (Jennifer McCool). Bailey was his pride and joy. Bailey brought tenderness and a new love for life out in him. Bailey was always Marc's sidekick everywhere he wentor at least until she became a teenager and he got his fur baby Zac. Marc found the love of his life, Michelle in 2007. They married in a private ceremony in 2008. Marc's family became complete with Michelle, Michael, Rylee, and Bailey. Marc loved spending quality time with his family, creating memories, and traveling. His favorite place to go with his family was Cabo San Lucas, where they created many special memories. Being a blended family, they jokingly had re-coined their last name to be The McSwitzBurgs. While Marc grew up in church, it was in 2007 where he rededicated his life to Jesus with a passion and fire that could not be contained. Marc had a boldness and strong conviction to share the love of Christ with everyone he encountered. Marc had a contagious smile, gregarious laugh, and was a friend to everyone he met. Marc brought joy to every person he spoke to and was a light of influence to all those around him. Marc was an uplifting friend, had a positive attitude, and a drive to see those around him succeed. Marc had a way of simplifying life in knowing all things would work out for God's good. Next to his relationship with Christ and his family, Marc had a deep love for people. Marc's number of friends can never be quantified but some of his lifelong and most faithful friends that we would be amiss to mention are Shawn Linhoff, Tim Leavitt, Keith Dupuis, and Dave Larson. There is not one thing that he would not have done for them, or they for him. Their bond has always been something truly special and Marc treasured them all. Marc is survived by his mom, Gloria Switzer, Aunt Sharon Hoops (Frieda, Lisa, and John), brother Michael, (Brandi and Isaiah), beautiful daughter Bailey, devoted wife Michelle, stepchildren Michael, Brennan, Rylee, and his fur baby Zac. A celebration of life will be held at South Hills Church at 3700 W. 27th, Ave Kennewick WA 99337 on Monday, May 8th, at 1pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Cure Starts Now Foundation in honor of Cooper Larson.
